Oral Presentation Neutrino Interaction Physics

MINERvA is a neutrino scattering experiment designed for high precision measurements of cross sections and studies of nuclear effects. Charged-current quasielastic (CCQE) scattering events are a significant contribution to the signal of many oscillation experiments. It is the dominant reaction near 1 GeV, a critical energy region for long baseline oscillation experiments. MINERvA has conducted many CCQE studies in the low energy NuMI beam. In this talk, I will present an overview of the Minerva detector and summarize the low energy quasi-elastic scattering results.
